Might be useful.

Maybe mine is softer for very far distance but I will not do any test. The lens is stellar for what I do.

From very close;

Not going to vote yet...still playing around with the settings on mine, might be able to get away with 0 MFA for everything but having some differences depending on lighting conditions.

but having some differences depending on lighting conditions.

Is this not more of a camera problem? My 135L do that like crazy and I've been told it's my cam. First time in my life I got this problem.

I believe Canon is the best brand in lenses after Leica. However, I think the Sigma 35/1.4 is the best!!! I also like the Sigma 70-200/2.8 and the Sigma EX100-300/4.

I do not shoot objects in the infinite with a wide open lens, unless it is a teleobjective. Even so, my Sigma 35/1.4 did pretty good at infinite wide open.


It's not a photo until you print it! :cool:

Ignorant question and probably no correct answer, but does the Canon 35mm L require MA typically? (Or if so, is it less needed that it seems the Sigma is?). I'm torn between the two lenses. I have a 5D3, but I'm not one to sit around experimenting with MA. I just want a lens that works out of the box and works well/correct ; (

EDIT: Just wanted to clarify so noone thinks I'm trolling. I understand all lenses, including Canon, may require some MA and obviously that is why they give us the capability, so we might as well take advantage of it. What I don't like however is inconsistency. Example, I have a 50mm 1.4, and I was all set to send it into Canon thinking it was badly out of focus, when I went to take the requested test shots and all of a sudden it was spot on focus. I conducted MA tests per the guide on Canons website, and it was spot on 0. However the lens still behaves inconsistently depending on lighting and which focus point I use. I'm curious if the Sigma will behave this way moreso than the Canon 35L, with or without MA

Damn, I did not see that one before posting. Anyway, on the other poll the results are not going to help at all as someone could say "yes" when it's just a bit of MA.

There's nothing wrong with a lens requiring a bit of MFA. most fast lenses do.
